Extend Microsoft Services Anywhere

Users may easily deploy and operate Microsoft service workloads to take full advantage of investments including SQL Server and Exchange. QSAN provides stable connections and secure storage, which can help users to optimize data management while automatically executing and protecting Microsoft workloads and data.

Integrating into Microsoft environments with iSCSI Initiator

Enhancing fault-tolerance and performance through MPIO

Verifying connection authentication with iSCSI CHAP and mutual CHAP

Guarantee Data Consistency

QSAN storage is compatible with Windows VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service). VSS is a host memory flush mechanism for creating consistent “point in time” copies of data known as “shadow copies.” A Windows agent utility is provided to bridge and synchronize the information between the QSAN storage and Windows operating system. After implementation, snapshots could be triggered directly from Windows without any data consistency issues.

Ensuring data consistency while taking snapshots

Reduce Host Resource Usages

Microsoft Windows ODX (Offloaded Data Transfer) enables direct data transfers within storage systems. It minimizes latency, utilizes I/O, maximizes throughput, and reduces host resource usages, such as CPU, memory, and network consumption.

Optimizing IT resources and provides agility solution with ever-increasing data

Share Files Easily

SMB (Server Message Block) protocol is a network file sharing protocol that allows applications on a computer to read or write files and to request services from server programs. In a computer network, users may share files through TCP/IP or other network protocols and unify all windows local/domain users with a few simple steps.

Accessing files over different platforms

Controlling the amount of accounts and share folders

Supporting Windows AD and LDAP directory services

Recover Data without Extra Efforts

Windows automatically saves as part of a restore point. Users may use previous versions to restore files and folders that are accidentally modified, deleted, or damaged. Depending on the type of file or folder, the feature consists of opening, saving, and restore a previous version.

Preventing files from accidental deletion

Ensuring data integrity under modification

Protecting digital assets from ransomware

Seamless Cloud Experience

OneDrive, Microsoft’s online storage, provides cloud space to individual licensed users in an organization. In addition to accessing files from multiple devices, OneDrive enables users to share files, collaborate on documents, and sync files to local servers.

Syncing files and folders

Sharing files for co-editing

Saving and opening files in Office apps

Backing up files with Cloud Sync on QSAN storage

Cross-Platform Access Control

Access Control List (ACL) specifies permission level of different accounts. Advanced ACL allows users set permissions on subfolders, while Windows ACL enables users to apply Windows file permission mechanisms on files and folders. With both kinds of ACL supported, administrators can flexibly regulate file access rules on all operating systems, protecting data from unauthorized access.

Managing accounts’ right to access certain data

Protecting data from theft

Single Sign-On Management

Windows AD (Active Directory) is a widely-adopted directory service developed by Microsoft. On QSAN devices, the association of AD and LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) centralizes the management, and access control becomes simple and efficient.
